Downloadable Audiobooks for iPods

NetLibrary has recently introduced downloadable audiobooks that will play on iPods. This is a frequent request, so we are pleased to now offer this service! Over 700 titles are available, remember to look for books marked MP3.

They have also made a program called Media Center available which makes downloading their audiobooks and transferring them to your portable listening device (MP3 player) easier and faster. You will see a banner for Media Center once you log in to your NetLibrary account which will take you to information on downloading and installing the software.

For a list of compatible devices click here. You can also view an FAQ and demonstration.

In order to use our NetLibrary audiobooks (or ebooks), you must first come in to Oldsmar Library and sign up for a NetLibrary account. With this account you can access these titles from anywhere, download them and play them on your computer or sync them to your MP3 player. This service is free and open to all Pinellas library patrons, but you must come to our library to sign up for the NetLibrary account. Call or e-mail us for more information.

We also now offer iPod compatible downloadable audiobooks through our OverDrive service.
